For seven years, my husband and I homeschooled our children, desiring for them to receive an excellent classical education which would teach them to think for themselves, and lead them to appreciate what is good, true and beautiful. When we discovered PCA, we decided to turn the work over to their wonderful and dedicated faculty. We have not been disappointed. Our children, in grades 8, 7, 4 and 3, are thriving in a culture different from most educational settings. They are reading great books, discussing timeless themes of good and evil, really digesting history, studying Latin and formal logic, learning to read and spell with a strong phonics program, and developing writing skills using the progymnasmata, an ancient (tried and true!) system. PCA feels like an extension of our family, because of small class sizes, the teachers' genuine love and concern for the students, and parental involvement. Great school!
